The dark and cold mornings are finally coming to a close, which only means one thing – summer is coming! Now that you can almost smell summer, it is a brilliant time to start preparing your home for the warm summer months (or weeks if we are unlucky).
This article will give you a few ideas on what you can do to prepare your home for the upcoming summer!
This time of the year is perfect for giving your house a big spring clean. Obviously, you have probably been cleaning your house throughout the winter, but sometimes dust and dirt can be missed in the dark winter months.
Open up the windows that have been closed during the colder days, and let air into all your rooms. You’ll be surprised at the difference that this can make.
You should pay special attention to your windows, as these can become particularly dirty after a lot of bad weather. Spend a day scrubbing all your windows; your house will look so much better for it.
Clear out your fridge and freezer
Summer means ice cream, BBQs and more ice cream! This is why you should have a clear out of your fridge and freezer to create room for all the summery goodness! It won’t be too long until you want room to stock all these summer treats.
You don’t want to waste any food though! We suggest having a dinner party, and using up all your unwanted food.
Do some gardening
When the weather is warm, we tend to spend a lot more time in the garden. Why have your party inside when you can have it out in the sun? This can be embarrassing if you haven’t touched your garden all winter, and everything is overgrown and messy.
It’s nothing to worry about, as you can easily prepare your garden for summer quickly. You just need to mow the grass, get rid of unwanted weeds and keep on top of growing plants. Easy!
Update your conservatory
There is nothing better than spending summer nights entertaining in the garden. However, it can tend to get chilly later on, and so you may wish to move your party into your conservatory.
This is why it’s the perfect time to start preparing it for entertaining your guests.
We suggest putting a table and chairs in there, or even a sofa. This gives you and your guests somewhere to sit and relax.
If you don’t want to do anything dramatic, we suggest updating the colour with something a little brighter. You could also spruce it up with some flowers and pictures.
